Inspired by All the Little Things Challenge #29

Happy Sunday!! I wanted to get this post out yesterday but never got back to the computer. Had a great day doing laundry and spending time in my craft room making cards while it was dreary and wet. No better way to spend a rainy day!!

I made a card for the Inspired by All the Little Things Challenge #29.

I was inspired by the pretty fall colors of the leaves in the challenge photo.

I started off by stamping the leaves from the Simon Says Stamp "One With Nature" stamp set and colored them in using Copic Markers and "Clear" Wink of Stella. I then die cut them with the coordinating dies.

I put the leaves aside and stamped a background on white card stock with PaperTrey Ink's "Ombre Builders" stamp set in ink colors chosen from the leaves I colored. I die cut the panel with a My Favorite Things "Inside Out Stitched Rounded Square Stax" and stamped a sentiment in brown ink from the "One With Nature" set.

I mounted the stamped background onto a "Pure Poppy" top folding A2 card that I had created. I then adhered the leaves on, popping the small yellow one up with some foam adhesive.

My last step was to adhere some green sequins around the leaves and add a dollop of Stickles over the sequins.

I really like how this came out. I had never used either of these stamps before so it felt good to pull them out.

I thank you for stopping by!! Have a great night!
